How To Actually Win A Fist Fight Ok, well, with the response from yesterday's post, I felt compelled to go ahead and do this. Without further ado: You know it has to be said, first sentence, first paragraph: the best way to win a fist fight is not to get into one in the first place. No shit, sherlock. Every single mens magazine who has ever attempted to publish an article like this has started (and ended) exactly that way and is usually devoid of any real information - sometimes because someone on the editorial staff wanted to avoid putting the periodical at risk for a lawsuit; other times because the author has absolutely no clue what they’re talking about, so they cop out with this “Verbal Judo Wins The Day!” It’s common sense - avoid fighting if at all possible. So... The Basics First, you need to know a few things: You are going to get hit.When you get hit, it does not feel good. Confidence CANNOT be overvalued in a fight situation. Your Stance Your stance is the way you stand and position yourself during a fight.

ANIME The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!) by Joel Spolsky Wednesday, October 08, 2003 Ever wonder about that mysterious Content-Type tag? Did you ever get an email from your friends in Bulgaria with the subject line "???? I've been dismayed to discover just how many software developers aren't really completely up to speed on the mysterious world of character sets, encodings, Unicode, all that stuff. But it won't. So I have an announcement to make: if you are a programmer working in 2003 and you don't know the basics of characters, character sets, encodings, and Unicode, and I catch you, I'm going to punish you by making you peel onions for 6 months in a submarine. And one more thing: In this article I'll fill you in on exactly what every working programmer should know. Before I get started, I should warn you that if you are one of those rare people who knows about internationalization, you are going to find my entire discussion a little bit oversimplified. A Historical Perspective Unicode OK, so say we have a string: Hello Encodings

Cry Plays: The World Playthrough : I have been told numerous times of people who want to be up to date on things, but feel overwhelmed by the amount of videos they would need to watch in order to get up to date on such things. You lose a lot of fun moments, but are caught up entirely with the story and everything of importance that is needed to continue with the game/playthrough if you wish to join me. Because this game deserves some love, man. Note: Some things may be a bit out of order, and other things may be false information. But dammit if it doesn't give you the idea well enough. Hope you guys are okay with that! Because this 10ish minute video took me roughly seven hours to make, from the scripting to the recording to the video splicing. Okay! Have a good one.

Et encore une chose : Un point de vue historique Unicode Hello Juste une poignée de points de code.
